At Strata we’re passionate about giving back and supporting charities that make a difference. Each year we select a charity to support and organise events to help raise money for the cause.
This year we’re supporting the inspiring charity When You Wish Upon A Star who help grant the wishes of children suffering with terminal illnesses. Whether it’s helping them swim with dolphins or taking them to Harry Potter’s Hogwarts, no wish is too big for this amazing team.
We want to raise as much money as we can to help make these brave children’s wishes come true and our first event is the Major Series obstacle race.
The Major Series
Voted the UK’s Best Trail Race, the Major Series tests your endurance over a variety of obstacles, hills, mud and water. It’s all about teamwork, camaraderie and determination!
On Sunday 15th March, the Strata All Star Army will arrive in Bramham Park, Leeds, to face our toughest test yet. 36 staff members, including our CEO Andrew Weaver, will crawl under netting and plunge down water slides to help raise money for this fantastic charity. The team will be split in two; some will run the 5k while another group will take on the gruelling 10k race.
Our Charity & Events Manager, Leonie Weaver, says “We're so thrilled to be helping raise money for such a brilliant charity. When You Wish Upon A Star is a fantastic cause and the Major Series obstacle race is just one of the many fundraising events we have planned to show our support for our Charity of the Year. Bring on the mud!”
